Oregon is a beautiful beautiful state, full of fun-loving people, that love an adventure, like mountain climbing in the Mt. Hood National Forest, and the sound the dice make when they tumble along the felt of the craps table.

Spirit Mountain casino is 100% coinless. You plop a bill into a machine, and it spits out a piece of paper when you win. Every slot machine in the house will then accept that slip of paper. When you’re all done you can either take the slip to the cashier, much like you would poker chips, or you can simply put it into an A.T.M like machine that will cash out your loot for you. For those of us frugal casino players, this is a smooth way to avoid the necessity to tip the casino’s cashier.
Spirit Mountain is located on Highway 18, about 40 minutes drive time from Lincoln City and the ocean. Competing casino Chinook Winds is located in Lincoln City. That seems to actually be an advantage for Spirit Mountain however.

Chinook Winds has a lot to offer.. but if you have to PASS Spirit Mountain to get there… you might just opt to stop in.. mayhap try out the brand new buffet and perhaps you’ll like where you’ve landed and stay. Seriously, Chinook Winds has the beach, and frankly, I get the runs when I eat at their buffet, on the other hand, the buffet at Spirit Mountain is literally the biggest and best buffet in Oregon.
